IQD has launched a new high stability and low phase noise Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) which also offers excellent short term stability. The IQOV-220 delivers an exceptional frequency stability performance down to ±0.5ppb (parts per billion) over the full industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees C with a short term stability (Allan Deviation) of 0.5ppt (tau=1s). With a holdover spec of 6µS over 24 hours, a close in phase noise of typically -140dBC/Hz @10Hz and far-out phase noise of typically -160dBc/Hz @100kHz, the IQOV-220 is ideal for high-performance synthesizers, Network Clocks, Radar & Satellite Communications.
The IQOV-220 is available in 10MHz and is housed in a 36 x 27mm industry standard hermetically sealed through-hole metal package. This Sinewave OCXO is capable of driving up to 50Ω loads and operates at 12V, consuming a maximum of 5W during warm up and 1.2W maximum at steady state @25 degrees C.
The new OCXO has a frequency adjustment on Pin 2 which enables the frequency to be pulled by ±0.4ppm (parts per million) with a control voltage of 0 to 8V which will be sufficient to cover 10 years ageing.
This new series forms part of an extensive range of OCXO’s available from IQD, which include extremely low phase noise performance and ultra-small packages. Please note that an export license will be required by customers outside of the United Kingdom.
